Taste profile from the winemaker: "Traditional white wine vinification at controlled temperatures of around 18-20°C; modern taste, straw-yellow in color, pleasant bouquet, delicate, fruity, dry in flavor, elegant, and well balanced."

ABC Wines review: This wine exhibits an herbal citrus blend of aromas. The fruit flavors on the palate are not particularly pronounced though there is a brisk acidity with some mineral character. The finish is reasonably long and smooth and just slightly overly astringent. Our score: A good Italian white wine to serve with a good Italian meal. Average, maybe a touch better.
